Just because he's BIGGER than Westbrook, don't make him better.

The paradox as I understand it. I got u bro.

He's saying that if something is averaged it should have more than a 50% chance of happening, but it didn't. It's interesting, but he obviously did average it

But if you were betting you'd be better off betting on the guy w 42 and 9.9.

That's the median, not the average. It's a matter of distribution type, "average" doesn't necassarily have to be at the 50%ile.

Triple doubles are binary events.

They're 1's or 0's.

Fact is, because you can only get 1 triple double per game, it's impossible to average a triple double without getting 82 of them.

His averages are the equivalent of what a triple double looks like, but he did not average a triple double.

According to this logic, only Wilt ever averaged merely a double double in a season as well, since he's the only player to get double doubles in every game of a season. But even Wilt didn't average a double double in his career, since he didn't have double doubles in every game of his career.

You are falling into a semantical black hole.

Averaging a triple double is averaging double digits in 3 statistical categories.

Hence, he averaged a triple double.

Did he average achieving a triple double every game during the season? No. There is your binary part.

He still AVERAGED A TRIPLE DOUBLE, WHICH IS HE AVERAGED DOUBLE DIGITS in 3 STATISTICAL CATEGORIES.


Just like the person that gave you the 30 ppg example. If a player averaged 30 ppg for the season, in your definition, he did not average 30 ppg. The event of 30 ppg is a single event. He did not do it 82 times in a season, therefore he didn't average 30 ppg, he accumulated enough stats to make it look like he averaged 30 ppg. NO. HE AVERAGED 30 PPG.

Stop playing stupid at this point. It's getting ridiculous Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Default Re: Westbrook didn't average a triple double. He only got 25 of them.

one can average a triple-double without averaging a triple-double PER GAME.

they are different measurements. a number of people, including myself, have already explained the difference in previous pages.

OP is obviously talking about the latter where the outcome is either 0 or 1 while everyone is thinking about the former.

so did WB average a TD for the season? YES

but did WB average a 1.00 TD PER GAME? NO.

this thread is just about the wording of shit.

Since players can still average 25 ppg when they clearly didn't score 25 ppg or more in all 82 games, your logic is flawed.

It's the same guy that showed up to his barber each time with a soup bowl and said "cut around this" until ISH told him NOT to do that.
